Looking for somewhere to have pancakes for UK Pancake Day and came across Hawaiian Style Café. There is no question that we got our pancake fix here! The food is very good, and the portions are so large you could probably box up what you don't eat and still be having it 3 days later! We both had... read more

This is hands down the best bet on the Island! Food was great - we went for breakfast. Not only are the portions generous, as everyone has noted, but the quality is top notch! A whole lot of bad food does not make it good, right? We had the homemade Portuguese Sausage, which was excellent, and the Banana Macadamia Nut... More

Go early to avoid line, or sit at the bar and meet the locals! The pulled pork omelette is Ono. The huge pancakes are a meal in themselves, I'll order only one next time, but wow!

Portions are enormous and was still stuffed sharing an omelette and 1 extra pancake. Service was not good. Seating us was annoying. Put name on list in front near doors. No one there to greet and explain process to you. Good value for decent breakfast food. You won't leave hungry.

This place was recommended to us as a great breakfast Café and I must admit its a typical local restaurant with good atmosphere and friendly staff. However, partly due to our bad choice and misunderstanding of the whole concept, this place was not for us at all. The meals were too heavy and greasy and my partner's specials combined sweet...

Arrived at 1:00 pm -- after the rush -- and ordered breakfast. Great omelet and hash browns. Two HUGE, fluffy pancakes came with it. Good service. Free drink refills. Highly recommend.

This is basically a local joint that serves very great breakfast. Go there with a huge appetite as the portions are large. If you are hungry and want to fine on good food in a local atmosphere, go here.. Be prepared to wait.
